Shoaib Ibrahim prefers trains over flights says, “I am scared of flights”

Shoaib Ibrahim claimed that he avoids flights at all costs and prefers train travel.

Shoaib Ibrahim is a well-known character in television and, more recently, on YouTube. Recognised for his parts in programmes such as Ajooni, Sasural Simar Ka, and others, the actor has become a social media celebrity thanks to his YouTube videos. Shoaib constantly engages his social media followers and frequently responds to fan questions.

The Ajooni actor recently hosted a ‘Ask Me Anything’ session on his Instagram account. During this session, Shoaib answered questions from his admirers. One question posed to him was why he hadn’t gone on the ‘Umrah’ pilgrimage yet. Shoaib responded by turning the camera towards his mother and explaining that her fear of flying was the reason.


Despite his attempts, she continues hesitant to board flights. He also revealed that his father has flown before, but his mother is hesitant.

Furthermore, when asked why he only flies to Dubai and not other nations, Shoaib replied, “Because I am afraid of flying. I’m not sure whether you’re aware, but I have a fear of flying. Unless absolutely necessary, I avoid flying altogether. I prefer trains to planes. That is exactly who I am. So, anytime we have the opportunity, I go to Dubai.”

Shoaib, who last performed on Sony TV’s show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, received a lot of praise for his performance. He’s been married to Dipika Kakkar since 2018, and the couple recently welcomed their newborn boy Ruhaan, embracing motherhood with enthusiasm.
